Likely hood Kennedy and Girbe will be in NHL next season.?!

Due to the fact that Buffalo will be having many free egents next year and by the deadline, (Mair, CMac, Grier, Paille, and who knows bout Staff) will the young guns make the jump to the NHL? Well Girbe was the ahl's top rookie leading scorer 30g 26a and kennedy was 1st in points with 18g 59a on the Portland Pirates. Both had stints with Buffalo last year but both looked a little rattled and inefective. (Girbe 11 games, Kennedy 1 gp)  Till they can make the jump Buffalo will have to resign the ufa Kennedy during the season or near the end of the season if they want him to still be wearing the blue and gold.  Both young men are playmakers and very effective forwards on the first line for the Pirates.  They will definatly have the oppertunity to shine next season as Reiger and Ruff both speak highly of these players in there second year.  Also with the likes of Mancari if he does resign, he is another top prospect that has more size and experiance and there could be a chance that they all make the jump next year.  If called up this year it will most likely be because of injury and prolly wouldnt be up for long.  Cant wait til the season gets started and tell me what you think will happen.  Looks like a trade or two by the deadline the way things are shappin up!?
